[ARCHIVED] Household Hazardous Waste & Pesticide Collections


Many common products used in and around the home contain ingredients that, when handled and disposed improperly, can cause harm to humans and the environment. These items, called household hazardous waste (HHW), will be accepted for safe disposal through the Grand Traverse County RecycleSmart program. Grand Traverse County residents may bring up to 150 pounds of material at no cost to any of five events scheduled in 2016. The cost for excess HHW is $1.30 per pound.

HHW drop-off events are by appointment only and will be held from 1:00 pm – 7:00 pm on the following Thursdays: April 21, May 12, June 23 and August 25. One Saturday drop-off event will be held on October 1 from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm.

Appointments are required for all of the household hazardous waste collection events and can be made beginning April 1 by using the online scheduling system at or by calling the RecycleSmart Hotline at 231-941-5555. The HHW drop-off location will be provided upon appointment confirmation.
